Classy but casual restaurant attached to the opera house. They don’t take reservations, but we didn’t have any issues on a rainy Monday night. Service was a bit slow (as there were only 2 servers for the restaurant), but the food was really delicious, and...More

Norrmalm is Stockholm’s most central and busiest
neighborhood. It’s home to the main shopping street,
Drottninggatan, and to Stockholm icons like the
Sergels Torg glass obelisk, the famous Hay Market with
its Carl Milles sculptures, and the Hötorget
Skyscrapers, a sight on every other Stockholm
postcard. Norrmalm is also home to Sweden’s most
traditional department stores Nordiska Kompaniet and
